Many current integrations with Patreon (like Itch.io) allow access based on a minimum dollar amount to access higher tier content. This worked well up until alternate currencies were offered. It’s great that Patreon is offering alternate currencies, but the change from ‘$’ to ‘amount’ breaks the integrations since pledge amounts are lower in Euros and Pounds for the same Tier.
This means I have to artificially lower the minimum amount to allow patrons paying in Pounds and Euros to access the content their tier offers. That then means USD patrons can lower their pledges and get access to content they shouldn’t have.
This is not just a problem with Itch.io, but also for determining the total amounts different patrons have contributed when calculating special treatment/recognition based on lifetime support.
Include a USD equivalent for integrations (and separate USD columns in the Patron CSV export) so access can be based on minimum USD even if the patron is paying in Pounds or Euros.
This would mean you can restore the 'Lifetime ' and 'Pledge ’ columns in the CSV export again which would fix our tools that used those column titles previously.
